It is situated on the east side of "Meall na Sunamaich" and about six miles from Uig. It is approached by a foot path passing near the base of a darK cliff which leads the traveller to the mouth, or entrance of a precipitous and rugged incline, on reaching the top of the slope you find yourself amongst a plateau of Green Grass, enclosed on every side by high columnar shaped rocKs.
